I've had a lot of those calls. It is of course a scam. They tend to get very confused when I tell them I don't have a Windows PC.

Ask them if they need Windows open Martin and when they say yes, tell them it's winter and you'll be too cold!

I string them along usually getting them to talk me through the location of this mysterious 'windows key' (I have a MacBook) until they click and hang up.

If you get a call from the following number 0034342134 be warned do not answer it they are scamming BA****DS.

This Asian guy has more names than I can remember, Mic, Martin, Mat, just a sample, may be one day he will be "Moron".
I said I think you are a scammer, I must have been correct as he instantly hung up, didn't even give me time to tell him to F**K O*F!!

Calls multiple times day and night.

How did you delivery it Mikey? DELIVERY IS EVERYTHING (and possibly the reason why the recipient didn't get it)

"just calling up to ask about your recent car accident" "I haven't had one" is how 99% of those calls go for me

Do people actually answer these? If I see a random number called with no message, I just leave it, or just look the number up on WhoCalledMe.com

I don't tend to answer them usually but sometimes if I've like just woken up I lapse in judgement and then I feel mean to just put the phone down so I nicely tell them I haven't had a car crash laugh.gif
